View Full Version : Staying Asleep!

Hi, my twin daughters are 8 months and I am having problems with the one staying asleep at night. "B" will sleep all night, but "A" gets up at least 2 times a night. I've tried separating them and letting her cry it out. and this worked for awhile. I moved them back together (separate cribs) and about 2 weeks later, she started getting up again. I can't let her cry when her sisters in there. So I rush in and take her out to the living room and rock her back to sleep. I keep going through this routine. I am getting so exhausted!! I feel like I have another newborn. I have no more ideas. Can someone help?

"Healthy Sleep Habits, Healthy Child" by Dr Marc Weissbluth. If you don't want to buy it, check it out from your library. The man's a genius. His book was a lifesaver for us and for several of our friends. Good luck to you!

My daughter i also almost 8 months just a few days ago she started sleeping through the night. She would wake up about seven or eight times a night, the doctor said this was just for comfort. I had her sleeping in my bed but once she started rolling over and kicking so much I decided she needed to be in her crib. Then all of a sudden three nights later all of a sudden she started sleeping she cried once two hours after I put her to bed, it was for about two minutes and usually I would have gone to get her. This time I didn't and she fell right back to sleep and has been sleeping through the night ever since!

I think you may be surprised how much noise the sleeping twin will tolerate if you let her cry it out a bit.

I am having the same problem. My 19 mo. twins sleep fine at night in the same room, but I had to separate them at naptime because they would keep each other up babbling and never get to sleep- I waited and hour and a half once and they just kept talking to each other. The minute I separate them, they are out like lights!
This is getting to be a problem because I am losing the nap room to another occupant. Anyone know how to get them to sleep at naptime together again?
I tried putting up a shoji screen between cribs with mixed results. Any other ideas? It was probably a bad idea to separate them in the first place.

It looks like twins just can't sleep in the same room. When they get their toddler beds, we'll have to put them in separate rooms. This really sucks, because it means we've already grown out of the house we just bought 8 mos. ago!
This theory was confirmed by Elizabeth Lyons' book "Ready or not... there we go!"
